This is LSO: An Update

Ed and Barbara, along with our musicians, board, and administrative team, want you to know that we are hard at work planning for next season’s concerts and events, and creating special content for our social media platforms (@lincolnsymphony on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter).

However, we have cancelled the remainder of our 2019-20 season in an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19. We plan to reschedule repertoire from these concerts on our programs next season, and we look forward to sharing our 2020-21 season announcement with you this spring.

If you have tickets to any LSO concert between March 14 – May 2, here are your options:

  1. Convert your unused ticket(s) into a donation. This contribution, along with special funding from some generous donors, will be used to provide financial support to our musicians. Thank you for understanding that, although our commitment to our community’s health requires us to take this action, LSO relies on ticket sales and donations of all kinds in order to remain financially stable. If we do not hear from you by May 1, we will automatically convert your unused tickets into a donation, and with gratitude, we will send you a receipt of your tax-deductible contribution and will include your name in next season’s program magazine.
  2. Exchange your ticket(s). You may choose to receive a credit on your LSO account for the value of the ticket(s) and pre-paid parking, if applicable. Later, you may redeem this credit for a concert in our 2020-21 season, subject to availability. Please note that subscribers are welcome to use this credit to bring a friend to a concert they’re already attending.
  3. Receive a full refund for the value of the ticket(s) and pre-paid parking, if applicable, or receive an equivalent reduction on the price of your 2020-21 season subscription.

Please visit lincolnsymphony.com/TicketOptions to let us know which option you prefer.

We are overwhelmed by the generous actions and the outpouring of kind words from so many in LSO’s family, and we can’t wait to express our gratitude the next time we’re all able to be together in person to share this art form we so strongly believe in.

We look forward to seeing you in the fall for a very special season-opening concert currently scheduled for Friday, September 18. Meanwhile, please keep an eye out for the announcement of our 2020-21 season, including information on how to purchase your subscriptions early to reserve premium seating.


Thank you to this season’s sponsors
